that there are 200 million jews and the world and israel is half the size of europe. it is not. the united states and canada are roughly 400 times each the size of israel. the arab world is 500 times the size of israel. egypt alone is roughly the 40 times the size of israel. and even a small country like jordan, our neighbor to the east, is almost four times as big. israel is bigger than rhode island. [laughter] that is about it. [laughter] now, mind you, small countries are not necessarily insecure. belgium and luxembourg are small, but today they are not insecure. if their neighbors included radical regimes bent on their conquest, bent on their destruction, it they fell the -- if they feel that terror proxy's that fire thousands of missiles on their population, believe me, they too would feel insecure. anybody would. because of our small size and the radical and violent neighborhood in which we live, israel faces security threats like that of no other nation. here are two facts from recent days alone that will drive this point home. a few days ago, the israeli navy it predicted that the ship ca
of the united states, peace can become a reality. [applause] we can surprise a skeptical world. achieving peace is a great challenge facing israel. at the un in september, i spoke of another great challenge. preventing iran from developing a nuclear weapons capability. the iranian regime tyrannizes its people, sponsors and supplies terrorists and openly pledges to wipe israel off the map. just imagine how much more dangerous this regime would be it had atomic bombs. the responsible members of the international community must unite to prevent this grave threat to the pace of the entire world. i support president obama's continued efforts towards these ends. i appreciate the firm position taken by the leading european governments. we must not succumb to the iranian regime's cutting into its to see. we must stand together to stop tehran from realizing its nuclear ambitions. in addition to achieving peace, and to preventing a nuclear iran, there is a third momentous challenge before us. reducing the world's dependence on oil. this would help cleanse our world after more than a century of industrial

, arresting and convicting and the kind of sentence that is administered to african americans in the united states. i think in many respects it is kind of a slam dunk of a case. there was a decision made that -- for expediency purposes that the case would be tried in virginia first. and that they would probably successfully get the death penalty. and virginia is a very kind of pro death penalty state. maryland has the death penalty, but it takes a very, very long time for somebody to be -- for for sentence to be finally taken -- taken out there. >> you were talking about the speed. that was one of the arguments made in the appeal to the supreme court. not only was this mentally incompetent person who shouldn't have been representing himself but the speed didn't have enough time to make his case before a district court, and challenging that, and new associate justice sonia sotomayor was one of those who said like you know why are we rushing, you seem to be jumping ahead of the timetable set for this. >> that was one of the problems that i had with the case, the fact that the supreme court wo
though. >> all right. bill: look, the problem with military action from the united states point of view is that what are we going to do? if we bomb them, then war breaks out even more intensely in iraq and afghanistan because the iranians then will move into iraq, reignite that conflict, because they can do it with the shiites. and in afghanistan, they can cause all kinds of trouble for us. so, the unintended consequences of u.s. planes going in and bombing their nuclear facilities or whatever you want to bomb is that you ignite the two front war we have. you make it ten times worse. so obama knows that. what does he do? >> well,. bill: mary katharine. >> i think one thing he does sen courage the people of iran perhaps in a more active way. bill: you can do that and he hasn't been doing that enough. i agree. >> wait, wait. i think making sure that he is clear that he is standing with netanyahu if israel has to do anything. bill: encouraging, mary katharine? come on. >> i'm putting some stuff out there. if marc lamont hill thinks we have to exhaust all things here are some things that he

running for re-election explaining why they voted for this, the president of the united states, any president does have the ability to reach the american people. so i don't see the need in this venue to supplement the ability to reach out to the american people. i think that gets taken care of automatically. the credibility is restored and the outreach is there. i think the harder question as i said in my opening remarks is about the composition and whether you bring the administration in or not. the goal is to have a nice, level bipartisan playing field so you can grapple with tough problems, there is no bigger big foot than the united states. and you might not have a level playing field. the party will be perceived as having a greater say and a greater stake. so i think that for the first attempt at this, it's better to err on the sign of taking that step. i think it's a hard call. >> all right. mr. gallston. well, this is not an easy question, but i'll try to provide an answer. my point of departure is a problem i've been studying for a long time, namely trust in government and r
